How to Propose a Symposium at a National ACS Meeting

Programming at National meetings of the American Chemical Society rely on volunteers to organize and execute symposia on a wide range of topics. POLY is dedicated to supporting symposia organizers and ensuring a robust and impactful presence of polymer-related research at National ACS Meetings. When proposing a symposium, please take into consideration the theme of the National ACS meeting, and complementarity to symposia proposed for the meeting (see below), as well as recent symposia and POLY workshops.  POLY seeks to support the scientific diversity of research and applications in the field of polymers.

Submit proposed symposia through the form found here.
